Walking around in clockwise circles, 2015
inset glass shelf, bronze  |  1.5 x 15 x 8cm
Presented on the floating glass shelf are bronze cochlear (or inner ear) - the part of the body responsible for balance. Both cochlear are from the right ear, suggesting the sense of balance off-kilter toward the right or clockwise. The cochlears have been reproduced through a digital file given by an MRI scan from an anonymous body. They were then 3D printed in wax and cast in bronze.

Searching for a sense of balance (part 1), 2015
Welded steel, lacquer, concrete, chewing gum, bronze cochlear  |  94 x 113.5 x 9cm
The work is in three separate parts. The first part takes the form of a frame that dissects the viewing audience as they pass, whilst presenting a carefully balanced cochlear that requires you to bend your head down to see in detail. Holding the frame upright is a ‘petrified’ concrete shirt sleeve. The other parts of the shirt pertaining to the entire upper body (other sleeve and collar area) are contained within the other two concrete blocks, which are distributed across the gallery floor.

Residua, (1, 2, 3), 2015
Cyanotype on cotton, welded steel, lacquer, magnets  |  each 182 x 46 x 9.7cm
Cyanotype is one of the oldest and rudimentary photographic techniques. Here, rather then making a photograph, the process and memory of the fabric itself has been captured. The particular dimensions of the fabrics provide a human scale when hung, yet when crumpled fit perfectly within the artist’s two hands. Whilst crumpled they are subjected to the cyanotype solution and, once dry, they are lightly tossed into the sunshine to be exposed. The stains upon the fabric firstly bear the chance way in which it was crumpled in the hand, and secondly the chance way it was subjected to sunlight.

Being both on and with, as I said (#1, #2,#3,#4,#5), 2015
concrete, armature, silicon rubber, artist book
The concrete cubes function as seating in which to read the artist’s book and provide a space which is accommodating for the body. The book contains a series of short texts along with a photo essay. The texts are self referential to the concrete cubes and the to the body that sits upon it, whilst the texts also form relationships to much of the work included within the exhibition. The book was written simultaneously with the creation of the sculptural work and further alludes to the artists interest in the role of perceptual memory between sculpture and written languages.
